Sky: Pioli tests out line-up that is likely to face Arsenal in friendly

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have a double training session today in Dubai and some news has emerged regarding the team that is likely to face Arsenal tomorrow.

Five players trained separately according to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky (via PianetaMilan): Davide Calabria, Alessandro Florenzi, Junior Messias, Brahim Díaz and Zlatan Ibrahimović.

At the end of this morning’s training session, Pioli tested the team that should face Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal in a friendly match at the Al-Maktoum Stadium tomorrow, with the usual 4-2-3-1 formation.

Ciprian Tătărușanu will be in goal as Mike Maignan is still doing an individual training schedule in view of returning by the end of the month or the beginning of January.

Pierre Kalulu, Matteo Gabbia, Fikayo Tomori and Tommaso Pobega should be the back four, given that Theo Hernández and Fodé Ballo-Touré are still absent after World Cup participation.

In midfield it should be Sandro Tonali and Aster Vranckx as Ismael Bennacer only joined the group yesterday, while Alexis Saelemaekers, Yacine Adli and Ante Rebić should get the nod to start behind Divock Origi.
